      Has anyone ever noticed if they close their mouth or open their mouth wide enough hear any trembling?

      I can only hear/sense it whenever I have earplugs on and a silent room. It's very very faint but if I close my mouth, smile, or open my mouth wide enough it begins making this trembling sound.

      It's not noticeable without earplugs though. I had two impacted wisdom teeth and I noticed that with earplugs it will tremble and now that I took the two wisdom teeth out, my mouth or jaw or whatever it is still trembles.

      If I keep my mouth open at the right angle then it stops trembling.

      This is quite strange.

      That's what I'm thinking but my GP and dental surgeon said I don't have TMJ but dental surgeon did say I may clench at night.

      I'm going to buy a cheap night guard and test it out for a few weeks.

      The thing is there's no way I'll ever hear it as of right now without being in a silent room with ear plugs.

      Were you able to hear it with ear plugs or without?

      I can hear it only with my earplugs in. In fact, I have been able to hear this sound long before I got T.

      @Hex Most likely it just muscle or ligament strain/fatigue. I seriously doubt that it's oromandibular dystonia or facial nerve as you would need to be also twisting mouth or tongue like me. A mouth guard should greatly help, but it often advised for those with tremors to use a lower guard that cover all teeth.

      Noise
      Muscles vibrate as they contract. When ear canal is occluded for example by an earplug, these muscle vibrations can't freely escape through the ear canal and can be left to reverbate due to occlusion effect, and can create a rumbling sound.

      Thanks for confirming that.

      I thought it might put a lot of small pressure on the jaw and over time create T out of it. I'm just frustrated because I don't know what's causing my T after I went to an ENT and ER 6 times.

      Yeah, I've thought about this but I wonder if all this time this small bits of pressure would cause T. I bought a cheap mouth guard that I'll be able to use once my mouth heals from wisdom teeth surgery.

      I read about this! I was thinking if I should do jaw massages because of this issue.

      My T was caused by an acoustic trauma, and possibly by me doing Valsalva maneuver. It wasn't caused by this "trembling" issue.
